REcipe tips

When you roll out the pastry use the longest piece of asparagus as a guide as to how far you can fold the edges over to make the crust. 

I use the ready-rolled puff pastry because I have no time to make my own. If you would like to try this with homemade pastry here is a recipe for you. 

Spread the soft cheese out evenly. I didn't and it kind of pooled in some areas and wasn’t as thick in others. 

Get an unwaxed lemon, nothing changes the outcome of a dish quicker than wax instead of zest.
